Happy Day Birthday Shaker Card

Hello!  I’m stoping by to quickly share a card I made the other day.  I’ve used this Happy Day stamp set by Concord & 9th quite a few times in the past few months but each time – it turns out different, in all good ways!  In the past, I have embossed the image and watercolored, but I used Copic markers to color the image this time.

My friend, Missy loves GLITTER.  Every time she asks me to make a card, she wants me to use glitter – so you’ll probably recognize the glitter paper.  I’m also a huge fan of these stitched rectangle scallop frames from My Favorite Things.

The banner and sentiment is from the same stamp set – I love that you can customize the years.  I propped the frame up using foam adhesive and turned card into a shaker.  The pink in the background is subtle but it brings out the color of the cake as well.

I filled the shaker portion with lots of iridescent glitter, gold sequins, and some iridescent microbeads.  I haven’t made a shaker in a while so this was fun for me!  I’m working on a fairy card in a box for my next post.  I did all the coloring for it and plan on having a supply list and details.  I’ve shared a few of those cards in the past with very little instructions but I hope to share more next time.  Stay tuned!

XOXO,

Happy Snowman

WordPress reminded me today that my blog is 2 years old!  Happy Birthday, Blog!  It’s been a wonderful experience so far and I hope to be able to find more time to keep this up!

I simply cannot believe that Christmas is in a week! I probably wont get the chance to post anything before then, so I want to share my last Christmas project with you.  A friend reached out and asked me to make some cards for her.  She didn’t give me much – other than the fact that she loves glitter – so I decided to use the simple Happy Snowman stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh and cased this card from the PPP instagram that I follow.

I used the Puffy Clouds border by Lawn Fawn and added some silver and gold lining using embossing powder and stamped some snowflakes and embossed them in the same powder.

I used silver glitter on the blue cards and gold glitter on the green cards.

These cards were really fun and simple for me to make and these snowmen are so cute! I accented his buttons with some black Nuvo drops.  Hope you liked these – supplies are listed below.

Until next time – I hope everyone has a magical Christmas and stay safe wherever you are!

XOXO,
